Some time away is good for the soul.

Last week at this time I was at the beautiful Baird House Bed and Breakfast http://www.bairdhouse.com/ with my husband celebrating our 13th anniversary.  Crazy how time flys.  We had a wonderful time.  No, really.  It was WONDERFUL!  What’s not to love about waking up to the smell of bacon cooking and freshly brewed coffee while the mountain air breezily flows through the open windows and then having it graciously served to you?  A bed and breakfast is the way to go, in my opinion.  This was our second stay there and it did not disappoint.  We did some hiking and a little shopping, tried new foods at some great local restaurants, and had great conversation with Tom and Deede (host and hostess).

The last morning we were there we sat on a rock beside the river that runs right out in front of the b&b.  Cory read a book and I just breathed.  Yes, seriously.  It was warm and the air was fresh and I didn’t want to waste it!  Be.in.the.moment.

Thanks to the post in the ground and the self-timer on my camera…a picture of the two of us!
Another self-timer pic. Apple pies and coke on the back porch of Mast General Store. We look weird.
